Chocolate Peppermint Bark Granola Bars

StumbleUponLinkedInShare

Just like everyone else I’m sure,
we are in the THICK of holiday baking.

The amount of flour, sugar, and chocolate being used
is obscene.

I wouldn’t have it any other way.

I always enjoy baking, but there is just something special
about Christmas baking.

The house feels warm and cozy,
the smells are incredible,
and music is a must.

Lately, I’ve been making a lot of candy,
and even though the kids have not been complaining,
I don’t like to sugar them up for their teachers too much.

Today I compromised

all the flavors of the holiday
with a bit less sugar than a cookie

Chocolate Peppermint Bark Granola Bars:
2 cups of rolled oats
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup of cocoa powder
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1/4 cup of maple syrup, agave, or honey
6 tbsp butter

1 peppermint bark baking bar

in a bowl combine the oats, flour, cocoa powder, and just a dash of salt
set aside

in a small saucepan
melt the butter, brown sugar, and syrup together

when the sugar has dissolved,
pour this over the oats

spread into a parchment lined square baking pan

bake @ 350 for 30 minutes

after they have cooled
melt the peppermint bark baking bar
and drizzle over the top

It’s not cookies or candy, but the kids LOVED them!

Enjoy
